In Her Own Words

About her

I guess my friends would say I am kind, creative, and pretty all round amazing - but then of course they are themselves a select and discerning bunch, readily open to bribes.

I've lived in Japan and spent considerable time in the South of France, and in both learned to love landscape and respect for nature. Love walking and talking, my work (for an international aid agency): writing in cafes; sushi, Madmen: gardening and growing food - blackcurrants, raspberries, beans and all sorts: Art Deco, Talisker, sculpture, languages, Italy, hedgerows and dry stone walls; maps; cinema (including the ads and the trailers, the whole nine yards) crumpets with marmite, and tea. Never knowingly used the phrase, 'No thank you, I've just had one'.

I have a good relationship with my ex-husband and his (now grown up) children, who still refer to me as their (evil) stepmother, high praise indeed. And friends new and longstanding, from age 9 (my piano playing partner) to 90.

Random things?
Most recent favourite book, The Running Hare.
Currently reading Resurgence. The Economist and the ArtFund magazine.
Favourite charity is Storybook Dads.
Last listened to JJCale.
Last cooked Easter biscuits, which were not the best, according to everyone who had one, including those who had two.
Last wore Muguet de Bois scent.
My study has a collage of images on the wall above my desk, including a photograph of Berlusconi surrounded by ministers which looks like an Old Master; sketches of rooftops by my dad and me; an 'Allez!' poster from the Tour de France on Mont Ventoux: the three-and-a-bit legged chair outside the Palais des Nations in Geneva: cards of a Japanese tea garden, sculpture from the Bronze exhibition; a London Born and Brewed beermat: a photo of my brother, holding a hen; photos of sandbars, of a 50's couple kissing in Paris; the Goethe quote; the wonderful logo of the Royall Albert Hall,

So - things there that catch my eye or lift my heart or sing to me in some special way.

Might you do the same?

About her ideal match

A man with smile lines, a warm and generous nature, self-awareness and mischievous eyes would be a great start. The rest is probably more up to being together and finding out
